Review:Cover Girl Blast Collection Eyeshadow Quad in Tropical Fusion....

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Hi ya'll!! I finally purchased the new Cover Girl Blast Collection Quad in Tropical Fusion( top palette in the picture) and was super excited to use it. I love bright shadows but you know, I complain that I'm not very technique-y with colors. I feel I must break free that negativity!!!! And go and do what feels good when it come to applying my makeup...
With the flash(at 6:00 this morning): I did the blue the corners, the orange in the center of the lid and the yellow in the inner corners. The color payoff is HORRIBLE! It took about four layers just to get this color. All the colors are super sheer and I was using a Sonia Kashuk sponge applicator tipped brush so I could get the vibrancy. I put that brush down and went to work with a basic stiff eyeshadow brush. Nothing. Nothing like I thought it would be.
Without the flash.
Full face: I wasn't happy but I might try it wet. I don't know.

I tried it wet and still got "ehh" results. It's ok, but I really had to layer it on.
